He's FOURTEEN now.
What does this mean for Grandy?
Well, it means that I now overhear conversations between him and his friends that I REALLY never wanted to hear. Case in point...
Me: ::driving him and friends to a party::
Him: Dude! You're not black? (ongoing joke with his friend)
Friend: Well... only from the waste down.
Me: ::giggling:: LA-LA-LA! NOT LISTENING!!
What else does it mean for Grandy?
It means that my boy is growing up, changing, every ding-dong-day!!
Other case in point...here is his picture from last year's birthday:
And here he is at Christmas:
He looks EVEN MORE different now!!
My handsome boy is turning in to such a young man. I get compliments from everyone I see about how sharp, courteous, and respectful he is. I'm so proud of him, in so many ways!! His nick-name is still Captain Half-Ass in Grandy-land because it takes him 3.2 tries to get his chores right. But we love him anyway.
Part of me though...deep down...still misses this kid:
Can you blame me????
Love you Bud!!!
